Mid Season Update 

I've finally gotten a chance to make some long overdue updates to the site...I've run down the major updates below. My apologies for not keeping more on top of the transactions, but other responsibilities have prevented me from devoting as much time to this site as I would have wanted to.

Along those lines, you will notice that many of the more "minor" roster moves (DL stints, DFAs, callups, etc.) have not been updated on the site. I had originally planned to keep up with them on a daily basis, but it just has not proved feasible. I still plan on catching up later in the year, but for now, just keep in mind that the rosters are somewhat dated. The impact on actual payroll should be small, however.

Without further ado, the updates:

  • Astros traded Kirk Saarloss to the A's for Chad Harville
  • Brewers signed Scott Podsednik to a two-year contract extension
  • Royals signed Angel Berroa to a four-year $11m deal
  • Athletics traded Frank Menechino to the Blue Jays
  • Expos signed Jose Vidro to a 4-year, $30m contract extension
  • Red Sox signed David Ortiz to a two-year, $12.5m contract extension
  • Angels signed Raul Mondesi to a one-year, $1.75m contract
  • Astros signed Pete Munro to a one-year deal
  • Expos traded Peter Bergeron to the Brewers
  • Astros traded Richard Hidalgo and $4m to the Mets for David Weathers and Jeremy Griffiths
  • Marlins acquired Billy Koch and an estimated $2m in cash from the White Sox
  • Yankees unloaded Gabe White onto the Reds
  • Tigers inked Carlos Guillen to a three-year, $14 million contract extension
  • Orioles acquired Jason Grimsley from the Royals for Denny Bautista
  • Red Sox signed RHP Curtis Leskanic to a one-year deal
  • Astros, Athletics, and Royals executed a three-team deal - the major payroll impact: Carlos Beltran headed to the Astros and Octavio Dotel and $1m headed to the A's
  • Indians signed Aaron Boone to an incentive laden two-year contract
  • White Sox acquired Freddy Garcia and Ben Davis from the Mariners for Miguel Olivo and prospects
  • White Sox signed RHP Freddy Garcia to a three-year, $27 million contract extension through 2007
  • All-star bonuses have been updated on all payrolls
  • Gus Papadopoulos of RotoWire passed along the details of Danys Baez contract with the Devli Rays
  • Sean Smith wrote in with the particulars of Garret Anderson's deal with the Angels

    Many thanks go out to Chris Kahrl, of Baseball Prospectus; without her fabulous Transaction Analysis columns, I would not have been able to catch up as easily as I did on the comings and goings of the first half.
